Short but sweet

I was looking for another tech news podcast to go along with Techmeme Ride Home and the Daily Tech News Show and This Week in Tech and macOS Ken !

This is a perfect fit - short and sweet. Skilled and experienced presenters, well-informed guest journalists - just what I needed

Thanks WSJ 👍🖖

Great tech news overview at last!

I have only recently subscribed to this podcast after trying several other tech news sources where were dissappointing on the whole. This WSJ podcast provides (in my opinion) an optimal balance of current and highly interesting tech news without being excessively technical. If you are interested in an overview of what is happening in the tech world in a professionally presented and seemingly well researched format, this is for you. If youi want a highly technical but very professional review focused on security, try Steve Gibson's Security Now podcast.
